Jo Allbutt, Victoria, BC – Having only worked solely on all previous pieces, the artist made the decision to work with others to create a piece of art that represented the power of collaboration. Finding an improvisational group of 10 artists set this in motion.

Natalie Skinner, Victoria, BC – Natalie Skinner has been a self-taught quilter for over 20 years. She lives on the west coast with her husband, two kids and dog.

Susan Teece, Victoria, BC – Susan Teece has been stitching her whole life. Another favourite activity is her love of adventure in our beautiful part of the world. Teece’s inspirations come from years of sailing through the Gulf Islands and of visiting other parts of the world. She began her textile art business in 2005. The inspirations for new projects continually flows.

Paulette Cornish, Nanaimo, BC – Paulette Cornish a Canadian Contemporary Fibre Artist from Vancouver Island has been exhibiting her Art Quilts for more than 20 years throughout Canada and internationally. Paulette’s past works have focused on landscapes. Over the last two years, studio downsizing has led to a “Crossroad” for her. Coupled with a burgeoning fascination for computer/iPad design, she has undertaken a substantial change in technique and studio practices. Printmaking on her own fabrics, while using commercial paper & other mediums in her learning,she is going down a very different road from the past.

Coreen Zerr, Nanaimo, BC – Using nature toward a realistic voice, Coreen Zerr experiments with new techniques to incorporate reality into her pieces. Her works have been displayed throughout North America, winning numerous major awards, and juried into many Fibre art shows over the past 20 years, including “Best of Country” at the World Competition. As a highly regarded Fibre Artist and mentor, Zerr has taught her techniques extensively on VancouverIsland Coastal region as well as across Canada. As part of Crossroads, Zerr’s work “Into the Light” has been recognized as the Winner of Wonderfil Award of Excellence in Thread Work – 2nd place, Sponsored by Wonderfil Specialty Threads.
